Unfortunately, the dark Star fades out, however, Cliff believes the magic of this show, take place well before Dark Star...

If the GROK goes, we could nominate 12-29-68 if we need a 60s era show...Looks like there is steady interest of 5 or so people (not sure what to make of it, nor what it means).

It means some folks comprehend what was/was not transpiring
pre & post 1977...

Cliff will have already streamed 12/29/68 by the Grok.
Cliff doesnt care which shows are selected for the Grok (pre-1978 of coarse). In fact Cliff may prefer shows he has not experienced. Cliff participation in this forum is mainly to get hipped to new shows...

Over the past week or so, Cliff has sampled a significant amount of post 1977 material. After having done so, and in spite of every-ones suggestions being excellent, Cliff remains steadfast in his opinion that there is STILL too much mind-blowing jamming pre-1978 to enjoy, to accommodate much listening to later material at this time...

Of coarse the Cape Cod show could be an exception?
